Foundation Detail

Recommended Posts

ryanpatterson

Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I am looking for a detailed drawing of the connection between a steel beam and pad foundation (Bolt box). Is there anywhere that I would be able to get this in a dwg format? Any help would be great. Thanks

I've never encountered the term "bolt box". Most beams in foundations sit in a pocket created in the wall. Could you elaborate?

Maybe its just the term used for it in the UK? Bolt box is the term used for the connection between a vertical steel scansion and the foundation. The bolts are set in a framework and concreted in with a large washer and funnel. The funnels are then taken out to allow room for the bolts to move into the correct position for the scansion. The void created by the funnels is then filled with a concrete slurry. Found this link to a picture which will probably help more than my description lol

I assume you mean to say STANCHION (scancion is something to do with the metre of poetry).

 

"Bolt Boxes" come in various shapes and sizes.

If you ask nicely they should give you cad files.

Lots of companies will do this.

The idea being if you use their cad blocks in your design then you will specify their prodicts.

I don't see how that could ever be an acceptable method of bolting up a column (not a beam) to a slab. Is high strength grout used or epoxy?

 

Looks easy enough to draw up.

Yes @nukecad. My mind isn't quite functioning this morning. I found that picture so just had to draw it myself. Worked out ok I think.

 

 

Yes I meant to say Column in my first post. Used quite regularly over here mark. Just a high strength grout is used.

 

 

Have it all drawn up now but thanks for the comments anyway :)

Here is a column detail that I came across recently while bidding a job. I see yours is already drawn now, but is this more or less what you were looking for?
